About seven years ago there was a technique that used a product called Glossy Accents and glitter to make a gorgeous stamped image. Glossy Accents was discontinued and I was soooooo sorry to see this go. Thank you to Dawn Griffith for making this technique available with easier steps. You can see her technique video under the July 27, 2018, post. Her blog can be found at www.dawnstampingthoughts.net
I am going to use the limited edition Blended Seasons Bundle. To see the options for this go to SPECIALS on the toolbar of this blog, This is an August only or while supplies last offer.
Here is the card I created with this bundle.
Can you see the beautiful glimmer? Well,get ready for easy easy easy.
First of all you will need a piece of Window Sheet Acetate (#1423149) and StazOn Jet Black Ink (#101406). Stamp you image onto the acetate. Be sure to press straight down as acetate tends to be slippery. Do not worry. If the image slips just use some Windex and a paper towel to clean and start again. Let this dry.
Once this is dry (a few minutes) flip the acetate over and color on the back with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. Refer to page 204-205 of the Annual Catalog for available colors. I used Cherry Cobbler Light (#144042) Call Me Clover Light (#147023) and Pineapple Punch Dark (#147030) to color in the photo below.
Sorry you see the holly image from another stamp in this beautiful bundle on the right. Stay tuned for another post on this.
Next use Glue Dots (#103683) to attach your image to Silver Glimmer Paper (#146960).
Use your Paper Snips (#103579) to trim around the layers.
And look at what you have. Absolutely beautiful.
I attached the image above to a Basic Black cardstock base (#121045) and one of the dies from the bundle that was cut in Whisper White Cardstock (#100730). I should mention the greeting is from the same bundle.
